I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do I get a quote?


The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


May the conveyancing hide any hidden charges?


No. We never charge any additional charges. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The final bill you receive may be much more.


Can doing DIY conveyancing save any cash?


On paper there are no reasons at all why you cannot carry out the your own conveyancing yourself.

However, a Crystal Palace property solicitor juggles a long list of roles from ranging from identifying and arranging appropriate indemnity or collating and preparing contract and package some of which need training. Nonetheless legal practices are bound to be in possession of suitable insurance cover that ultimately protects you from any failures.


Is a chancel repair liability search a fee or disbursement?


An ideal quote will list all disbursements and fees. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.


Why does conveyancing for a sale go on for so long?


The legal work involved in buying or selling Crystal Palace property could be obstructed even where there is no chain. The causes can sometimes be out of your solicitor's hands, we, however, know how distracting such delays can be and work hard to reduce their effect if it can be achieved. Delays may include slow solicitors acting for the other side.


What is the council tax on a terraced property in Crystal Palace?


Commonly, the report on title should give the appropriate Lewisham council tax band. Up-to-date rates for properties in Crystal Palace are set out on the Lewisham council website. At the time of writing on 28 October 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £899.00

Would arranging a house survey be required when buying a property?


We strongly advise that you instruct a property surveyor. A wide range of defects can affect a property. These can include settlement. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


How many weeks should I expect it to take our conveyancer to handle all of the conveyancing work on a detached recently developed property in Crystal Palace?


The legal process can take anywhere between one month and twelve weeks, which can depend on any number of issues, like the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the communication, with managing agents.
